Looking for ideas on how to support a Genturi to the side of the motorhome? I don't want to drill holes and screw a mount into the side of my motorhome. The Genturi goes by a window and I was thinking some suction cups on the glass, what do you thing? Open to suggestions. Thanks

My Genturi came with double sided tape to stick the little square widgets onto the side of the RV. Worked just fine.

I've seen several Genturi installations that use heavy-duty double suction cups with a release handle (similar to what glass installers use), one near the bottom of the pipe and another about as far up as you can comfortably reach.

As long as the paint surface is fairly clean, they seem to hold quite well.

The Genturi pipe is fastened to the suction cup holder with its normal hardware.

I use the little square hook brackets that ome with it. The sticky back seems to work fine.

3" suction cups at Walmart have worked for me for the past 5 years

I use the provided brackets as well, but a friend of ours uses a couple of additional bungee cords to hook the attached bungees to a window channel that the Gen-turi passes by.

Suction cups will work perfectly. I went that route rather than installing the brackets that came with it.

The only addition I made for mine was a 1" thick fairly rigid foam standoff that has a hole in it that fits the tube snug and has a base that rests against the window frame. On my coach it is right at the joint of the two extension tubes. Without it the wind would bang the vertical tubes against the side of the coach at times.
